Disease, addiction and compulsion, emotional damage and trauma, shifted value systems and distorted sets of values as an adult can be healed, restored and renewed at our Wellness Centre. “It is not enough to just talk about your feelings, you can’t be lead around by how you feel all your life, it goes deeper than that sooner or later, deep to the core of peoples value systems, of who they are and why they are who they are. It is this understanding that shapes the kind of inner temple or structure one builds within throughout life. When we deeply, soulfully learn how to remove the fear and distortions in our thinking, feeling and behaviour and become aware, then accept and then act on who we really are, we begin to see miracles manifest in our lives”.
